Getting Started...again.

I'm Lane Davis from Oklahoma City. I taught school for 20 years and then got an opportunity to get into building and real estate. I have a masters level education, and I am always looking to learn more. Can anyone recommend a text book that will help me learn to read commercial blueprints with accuracy and understanding? I have been around all kinds of construction all my life, but I am considering a move into project management with an OKC-based construction company. My goal is to work into management of large commercial projects like churches, schools, office complexes, etc...

I'm all ears, and I appreciate any help I can get.
